ATTENTION DATING SITE OPERATORS: You are welcome to request updates/revisions of your editor review.

Therefore we give you two easy ways to contact us and potentially have us add information for clarfification or correct info.

We actively seek to verify the facts about all dating site so PLEASE do reach out with any feature info and facts about your dating sites. It’s a collective effort and if you have something that we’ve left off then make sure to email me.

We wish to partner with you to convey the correct costs and features. Updates are typically completed within 48 hours and all emails are returned the within 24 hours.
NOTE: In Feb. 2014 we started the exhaustive process of updating and changing our format to be more fact based for all our dating site reviews. This meant we had to update over 300 different dating sites. That process is ongoing and will be ongoing through much of 2014 as we cross check and verify facts, figures, and features for all of the top dating sites.
We’ve also established a fair and clear 5 star, 7 metric ranking system that allows consumers to have the last say. Our guests are allowed to leave just 1 review per ip! We have designed our approach to doing dating site reviews differently in order to add more transparency to the dating site reviews presented by search engines. This is so that the information consumers find and read is more valuable to readers. Also, unlike so many dating reviews sites we do not place fake comments or fake reviews. We’d rather not bend the rules of ethics to merely try to game the ranks of search. Over time my friends, the cream will rise to the top.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
